Welcome to The Painting Pottery Cafe

We love to help individuals or groups spend an hour or two in our fun creative environment. You can choose from 100's of ceramic items to paint or try your hand with clay.

Everyone, no matter their age or ability, enjoys their experience and has something handmade and unique to show for it.  But don't take our word – check out the reviews on TripAdvisor or Facebook. And don't hesitate to get in touch.  We are here to help.


We do pottery painting every day and throwing most days but also have special events running throughout the year.


Mother's Day Treats

You love your Mum, we love your Mum - let us treat her to tea and cake while she paints the day away!

All you've got to do is let us know when you book, that you're bringing Mum (you could use our code word if you like - say MUMS THE WORD!) and we'll treat her like a Queen with tea and cakes while she paints. We'll even serve them on one of our fancy pants cake stands.

If you'd like to paint Mum a present and have it ready for Mother's Day - try and get in by 8th March to give us time to get it glazed and fired for you. 

There's 100's of items for you to paint, including plant pots and vases for the flowers you're going to buy her, or plates, cups and bowls for the breakfast in bed you're going to make her...

Get in touch to book your place. Booking is essential for throwing sessions, and advised for painting.

Not sure what to get Mum for Mother's Day? Got a baby?We've got just the thing!

Bring them in before 8th March and we'll have it ready for collection on 10th. We'll help you capture the little prints too.

Mother's Day made easy.

What we do

Great Daddy daughter time
— We came to Brighton on an overnight stay for my husbands birthday, the weather was artic cold so knew we would need an indoor activity, so our daughter with the help of her Dad done him a new mug, it's a fabulous little cafe, all the staff are so friendly and polite and the range of items you can choose to paint is extensive. We had lovely Lattes whilst they painted and the mug is being posted to us once it's ready. We had a lovely couple of hours in this beautiful,cosy little cafe and most importantly our 3 year old simply loved it xx Kirsty G - TripAdvisor


Creative delight
— Had a brilliant time here while on a day trip to Brighton on Saturday. We were amazed by the range of ages and visitors, from 6+ months to 80yrs, all ages welcome. A great place for an alternative group activity with friends. Fantastic value for money, at £5 pp studio fee, which covers your paints, tools, glaze and kiln use + whatever the cost of the item you choose to paint. My friend and I had a great time here, and can't recommend it enough. A great activity for all ages. Don't worry if you don't live in the area, because the lovely people there offer postage.
